Hughie Fury is set to return on the undercard of Dillian Whyte’s rematch with Alexander Povetkin in November, his trainer and father Peter Fury told BBTV.
The 26-year-old will be looking to continue the momentum he gained with his impressive stoppage win over Pavel Sour in March, as he looks to continue his quest for world honours.
In terms of who will likely be in the opposite corner to Fury, his trainer revealed Eddie Hearn and Matchroom ‘have come back with a few we are looking at, but nothing is fixed down opponent wise yet’.
He went onto emphasise his desire for Hughie to be in ‘meaningful fights’, however stating that it is difficult at the moment with the COVID crisis.
“We have got to just run with the times – we will look for somebody decent, the main thing for Hughie is to keep him busy, keep him active, keep him fighting and keep him winning.”
It was previously touted that Fury would clash with Dave Allen, however, the likelihood of that bout happening has faded as the lockdown and restrictions on travelling athletes have loosened.
